  • Rosewill RSV-L4000C 4U Mining Case

    rying to figure out how you want to build a mining machine, there aren't many options to choose from concerning its skeleton.

While Rosewill may not be that well known in the cryptocurrency space, they have made a name for themselves in the server market by manufacturing and designing quality components at a price point that most people can afford.
